Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Movie is cute but has some violence and some of the characters act rudely and awful toward eachother

This movie started super cute! And encourages the concept of friendship and working together but the hedgehog is super grumpy and unkind toward other animals which I personally do not like my kid seeing at four years old.. I had to fast forward through that. I love that they try to encourage love and feeling special and that everyone should be included.. but dislike the idea of how the alien lives on a planet that literally kills others and destroys all living creatures and things, the planet he comes from is destructive, and the *leader* is terrible to the alien.. The stampede was a bit scary also and I had to fast forward through it as well as the idea of *capturing his friends* thats awful.. and this shouldn't be in movies for kids under 7.. So some violence that may not be suitable for kids under 8

Please support movies like this

There are so few movies being made for younger kids that are safe and not infused with blatant political indoctrination. We have to support the ones that ARE being made, if we want more of them. This movie was good for ages 4-14. It had no questionable moments. It was entertaining, even if not the funniest. It had a wholesome message. The visuals were beautiful. We rented it for $4 on Amazon, and it was worth it.
